for your right brain. The creative brain. Here I want to offer thoughts...both joyful and anxiety producing...about being a creative. (I'm slightly uncomfortable using creative as a noun. I like that it covers us all in a word, but it still feels awkward. Hmm. What do you think?)
Every year I take the four days between Christmas and New Year's off. The plan is always to complete far more projects than are reasonable for that period of time. This year was no exception. I love having the time and indulging the chaos of my mind, but sometimes I have to step back and laugh at...uh, with?...myself. My plan this year was to do some house projects that had been begging for attention and spend many hours at my jeweler's bench after cleaning up the whole studio area. And here I am, early Sunday afternoon, with house projects almost all completed (yay!)...and not even 5 minutes have I been at the bench....sigh...
I did get this done...dining room fireplace...
And, I took time this morning to work on the next earring design. This will give some focus and direction for some time this afternoon....
Happy New Year!
